Imagine a magical night of fireworks, food, and your Zoo World family! Well, you won’t have to imagine much longer because we’re bringing our Fourth of July festivities right to your Zoo. That’s right! Get ready for the cutest red, white and blue animals to appear in your game!
Help us celebrate America’s Independence Day with the greatest picnic of the season. Grab your blankets, baskets, and favorite snacks and enjoy this July 4th with us! Look at these great new animals you can invite to your picnic!
Your mission is to get the animals ready and prepared for a Fourth of July picnic and BBQ. By collecting items and with your friends’ help, you’ll receive new patriotic animals for your event. The more materials you can get, the more you can host, which means more new animals! The more the merrier, right? So let’s get started!
The Fourth of July Seasonal works very similar to the past Spring Seasonal celebrations. Simply log into Zoo and you’ll find a new friend waiting for you at the dock, ready to welcome the festivities. Look how majestic it is! Can you already imagine all the twinkling fireworks ready to entertain you and your guests? Click on the animal to bring up the Fourth of July menu.
From there, you can choose an animal to help, collect items, and ask friends to help you ready all your animals for a warm night of food, friends, and fun!
How Fourth of July works in Zoo World:
As with the Spring Seasonal, you will need to collect special items to help the new animals. These items are Flags, Bags of Coal, Grills, Apple Pies and Sparkers. Talk about good old fashioned fun… and delicious! Each of these can be collected in different ways:
- Collect Apple Pies from the feed.
- Collect Flags, Bags of Coal, and Grills through gifting with friends.
- Collect Sparklers by feeding treats to your animals.
You can post to the Facebook Feed asking for help with the Apple Pies, Flags, Bags of Coal and Grills up to 4 times per day, or once every six hours. Likewise, you can post Apple Pies to the feed to help your friends once every six hours, and 10 friends can collect the yummy dessert from each post. Each of these items can also be purchased with WLP, if you’re in a hurry!
As mentioned before, the more supplies you get, the more rollicking good time you can have with your Zoo animals. The more materials you get, the bigger a picnic you can throw so you’ll be able to invite and host more guests to your party!
Make sure to take the time to Check-in:
Are you short on a couple items to help your animal? Clicking on the Eagle dock in your Zoo equals a “check in,” and you can do this once every five minutes (and even earn XP!). For every three check-ins you complete, you will be able to choose one free Fourth of July item of your choice!
How to get Sparklers:
Earn Sparklers by feeding any of your treats in Zoo World to your animals.You can choose any of your treats to feed and they will all deliver Sparklers! So, feel free to choose between a 10-minute Apple or the two-day Ice Cream Cone, they all work to snag you some shimmering sparklers!
The item will appear when you collect unbroken hearts, not while feeding. You can collect up to 10 sparklers per day. You get one Sparkler after collecting 10 unbroken hearts.
Asking for Helping Hands:
Once you have enough of each item, you’re almost done with preparing your animal for Fourth of July. You just need a couple helping hands from your friends to complete the mission. Click “Ask Friends” to post your request to your Facebook feed. From there, your ZooMates can help you directly or you can choose to purchase them for one WLP each.
Rewards and Upgrades:
For every animal you complete you will receive a pair (2) of that animal to place on your island. We’re already getting hungry from the smell of the grill cooking in Zoo World!
All the basic animals are Rare, and once completed, you will have the option of upgrading your Rare animals to an Ultra Rare. Upgrading your animals will cost 20 WLP.
If you decided not to upgrade, but change your mind later on, don’t worry! You can upgrade to an Ultra Rare at any time during the promotion by clicking on the Rare in your zoo. This will prompt a pop-up that gives you the option to upgrade it for the same price. Once the promotion ends, your species are set and can no longer be upgraded.
Getting Started for Fourth of July:
Two animals are unlock-able right away and ready for you to start collecting items for:
As with past seasonals, you will need to help the first animal to get the second, and then help the second animal before getting the third, and so forth. New animals will unlock every three days, but you will need the previous ones finished before working on the next. This way, all the animals can attend your picnic, so make sure no one is left out!
The Fourth of July seasonal ends July 26th at Noon PST. On this date, the campaign will end and the Auto-Trade begins. A couple days later on July 29th, the entire seasonal ends, so you will no longer be able to upgrade or trade in items. Check back here on the blog for more updates, announcements, and giveaways that can help your entire Zoo be ready for the best Fourth of July picnic your Zoo has ever seen!
